Default Windows Vista Administrator lost password

Hello Tara,

If you havenot NTFS encrypted files on your computer, you can just reset the
administrator password to blank using a Windows Password Reset Disc.

I have used Lazesoft Recover My Password, which is a easy to use. Here is
guides how to use it to reset Windows Administrator password to blank:

Hello Tara,

Your mother can do a system restore at boot using a restore point dated
before the password was changed to restore the old password. The
tutorial below can help show her how to.

Hope this helps,

I'm quite savy at computers but this is tricky. My mom has me set on
parental controls for Windows Vista. She gave me her password and I
turned them out, logged off and then logged back on to my account.
Then,
when I turned off the computer and she turned it back on the next day,
her password didn't work. She's called people and apparently, I changed
the password without knowing I did.

Here's the problem, I don't have a disk to reset the administrator
password and I already tried the CMD way to reset the password but I
got
"System Error 5 has occured. Access denied."

The administrator password is a big one since it controls everything I
do. I can't change anything or download anything without that password.

Is there ANYWAY I could change it?
